Hunter institute of TAFE required a series of short video clips as part of their e-learning initiative. The project was designed to take advantage of high-speed internet and was funded by the National Broadband Network initiative. The resources feature various technologies and approaches including Symbaloo within a Massive Online Open Course MOOC structure. I contributed educational advice and instructional design related to the project, exploring and negotiating various creative media and instructional approaches. Working closely with teachers and Hunter TAFE education officers and subject matter experts (SMEs)—including employees of Compassion Australia—I scripted and produced a series of short video clips.
The clips are informed by the unit of competency BSBWOR404B – Develop work priorities. Whilst outlining specific workplace tasks, we took a reasonably broad approach so the clips would be relevant across a range of workplace areas. I worked with the Hunter institute to plan the clips, ensuring that responses would map to specific competencies and their assessment strategy. A number of additional clips feature interviews with other employees performing similar workplace tasks, as well as clips featuring teachers outline assessment requirements for students. The project is related to Central Coast Telework initiative, with the final clips used in a range of e-learning and professional development contexts.
